General Posture

Make sure you adopt these good posture habits whether you're sitting in the cafeteria or at your desk.
  1. Fill in the space between your back and the back of the chair: When sitting in a chair, sit straight so that the space between your lower back and the chair is no longer existent.
  2. Keep your tummy relaxed: Don't contract all of your muscles when you sit down. You can rely on the chair to help you with your posture without tightening your tummy.
  3. Keep your neck, back and heels aligned: If you draw an imaginary vertical line down your back, your neck and heels should hit in the same spot, too.
  4. Keep your feet flat on the floor: Make sure you keep your feet flat on the floor when you're sitting at your desk.
  5. Sit down: Instead of sitting up, sit down, letting your chest relax down, but not over.
  6. Tuck in your chin: When standing, keep your head straight but your chin tucked in to keep your neck stable but not overexerted.
  7. Keep your knees at a 90-degree angle when sitting: Remember to keep everything aligned. Don't tuck your knees in, which can make you start to hover and hunch over your keyboard.
  8. Draw your shoulders back and relax: Draw your right shoulder, then your left shoulder back and then down, and then take a deep breath and relax. After working for several minutes, monitor the position of your shoulders, and make sure you're not hunched over.
  9. Align your hips with the base of your chair: Tuck your tummy in and sit so that your hips are touching the base of your chair back.
  10. Evenly distribute your weight: You shouldn't lean over to one side when you sit: you should distribute your body weight evenly between both hips.
